One person survived, 15 died in the crash of a Boeing-707 cargo ship in Iran. The causes of the incident are investigated. According to preliminary data, however, the crew confused the runway.
The liner landed at the Fatah airport of the city of Karaj, it is a suburb of Tehran. However, the plane was on its way to Payam airport – it is nearby, a few miles away. At the same time, the strip in Fatah is very short, about a thousand meters, which is almost four times less than in Payam. As a result, the aircraft probably did not have enough time to slow down.
The plane hit a concrete fence, crashed into residential buildings, where at that moment there were no people at a happy coincidence. All the dead were on board. The aircraft belonged to the Iranian Air Force and transported a batch of meat from Bishkek. Shedding light on the causes of the catastrophe can only be as surviving witnesses. This is reportedly the flight engineer of the ship.
